Liminal, a wallet that secures digital assets in a simple and efficient way, said it has secured $4.7 million (around Rs 36.1 crore) in a seed funding round led by Elevation Capital.
The round also saw participation from investors like LD Capital, Woodstock, Nexus Ventures as well as crypto ventures like CoinDCX, Hashed, Cadenza Ventures, Vauld, Better Capital and Sparrow Capital.
It was also joined by marquee angel investors like Andreas Antonopoulos, Balaji Srinivasan, Sandeep Nailwal, Jaynti Kanani and Ajeet Khurana, among others.
“We will be using the funds to invest in hiring and product development. With Liminal, we solve the very real problem of securing and scaling digital assets where users have to use different wallets and infrastructure for different protocols. Our three layers provide key management, operational automation, and compliance for enterprises,” said Mahin Gupta, founder, Liminal.
The company claims that in one year of operations, processed transactions over $2.5 billion, automated transactions worth $400 million and has around $50 million in assets under protection.
It counts ZebPay, DIFX and Flitpay as clients and is planning expansion in the Asia-Pacific and Middle East-North Africa regions.
